Week 10 brought brief glimpses of sunshine (in between torrential downpours and absolutely chilly weather) and Aly keeps asking if Spring is EVER going to get here.
64/365: Self and Match
Every evening we complete Aly's self and match, a therapy tool where she reflects on the day and whether she met her appropriate behavior goals. This gives her the opportunity to be more aware of her actions throughout the day and make good choices in the moment so that she can earn a reward at the end of the day.
65/365: Busy Schedule
This little chart on our refrigerator keeps me sane. Color coded and arranged according to dates and times, it keeps us on track throughout our busy weeks.
66/365: Bike Riding
For a few months, we thought we would be going on a family trip back to a place where she would need to know how to ride a bike to get around. So we challenged her to get good enough to use this mode of transportation at a sprawling family resort. Those plans fell through, but this girl blew us away and is more confident on a bike than we could have hoped for. Now, to get her as confident with swimming for our new family vacation plans...
67/365: Molecular Snack
She requested grapes, marshmallows, and toothpicks so that she could make sulfur dioxide molecules. Then she ate them.
68/365: Swim Lessons Begin
She was BESIDE HERSELF with excitement to start swim lessons again. It didn't matter that it was mostly cloudy and 57 degrees outside.
She came home from social group determined to do some gardening. The only seeds I could find came in kits with these cute little pots, which was fine with her. She carefully planted and patiently waited for her little babies to sprout for the rest of the day.
70/365: Swim Lessons...Bonus
Monday was crazy busy with running errands and dealing with camera/computer issues, so I wasn't able to get a shot on this day. So here's a bonus from Saturday's swim lesson. This was the last image I took and as you can see, she was smiling up until the very end.
